I know we all go round and round about it, but love the addt'l taping comment:

"...I don't know WHY people would object..." (ie, to taping).

Plus, his discussion of his own taping and how important it was to him re:bluegrass education...

cool; nice to know it's here!

this material is pure gold

Raddison Hotel, room 1503
St. Paul, Mn.
July 10, 1981

— the "taping" question —


journalist Greg Harrington asks, "Jerry, not many bands - if any, aside from The Dead, allow people in to tape record their concerts, and it's something that The Dead have always done. And, what are your feelings along this line? It brings alot of joy to alot of people."

Jerry Garcia, "Well, my feelings are the music is for the people. You know it's like, ahh, I mean after it leaves our instruments, it's of no value to us, you know what I mean? It's like what good is it? So it might as well be taped, my feeling is. And if people enjoy taping it, and enjoy having the tapes to listen to, that's real great. I can sympathize with it, because I used to do alot of taping myself when I was in bluegrass band. I went out of my way to tape shows and I know what that's like. And since what we do is live music, I mean thats ahhh..."

Greg, "Well I think the tapes really capture the magic of the band."

Jerry, "Well that's what everybody says. That's why people tape, you know. I certainly can't ... you can't fight with that, you know. I don't understand why people would object, you know. That's the way I feel about it."
